London, 19:— Assaults by British and French forces against German positions North of the Somme have resulted in the gaining of additional gr m.d by the attackers, according to The British and French war offices The French made advances in an 1 around \I lurepas the scene of much hard fighting during the last few weeks and the Bri tish gain was in thedirection of Ginchyand Gui lemon t near the Southern end of their section of the Somme front. The Anglo-French attack, London says, took place along the whole line from Pozieres to the Somme. The gains reported by Pins were in the center of the German positions in the Somme front and mark another step in Anglo-French advance toward Combles. French troops gained more ground in the village of Maure pas after the stopping of the Germ an counter at tacks near the village Calvary Hill Southeast of t lie village was cat ried by as sault and the French position on the Maurepas Clery Road was also extended. British troops advanced sue cessfully in the region of Ginchy and Guilemont and seised more German positions The French offensive continues on the right banks of the \Ieuse in the Verdun region and Paris chronicles the capture of two fortified redoubts Northwest of the Thiaumont Work Berlin Reports attacks by the French/.id British forces North of thP -/mime but says all of them v n,,v ( pulsed except one by the FrenehnearMaurtinpuich a French gain around Fleuryin the Verdun region admitted. 1%ire has been little activity on the Bnstem front according to the official reports most of the fighting has been in the Car pathian Mountains region where both the Russanand the Austro Germans claim to have made some slight advances. Berlin reports the capture of the Greek town of Fiorina North of Saloniki from Serbian troops. Artillery bombardments are taking place on the Austro Italian front around Glorizia. Rome claims an advance for I the Italians in the Trentino The long expected geneial offensive j on the Saloniki front has opened rtnd the grand assault against tl.e Central Powers now is in progress in every theater of the world war. General Sarrail is attacking i the Bulgarians and German for •es along the entire Greek Serbian frontier of more than iy> miles. Reports from both Berlin and I Paris indicate that the Entente Allies are following the same tactics in the Balkans that sig I nalized the opening of the great 1 offensive OS the Somme. Small Imdies of troops are attacking at numerous points along the Bulgarian line apparently with the intention of finding out their opponents position. The French claim the cap lure of a number of villages in the initial phases oftheoffen live while Berlin reports the capture of Fiorina, a Greek town 15 miles Southeast of Monastir from the Serbians. Ser bian headquarters admits this repulse. On the Eastern frontier the Russians have forced their way into the heart of the great mountain barrier between Ga licia and the Hungarian plains ••DRINK* Welch's Grape juice. BRITAIN WARLIKE"We are going to see this fight through to a finish," writes a British officer of high com mnnd to a friend in this country. "We have been slow but 'the mills of the gods grind slow but they grind exceedingly sure, and we have learned all our les sons, some of them from the Germans, and are coming along in fine shape. We have only commenced." Another officer writes from Flanders : "Our gun and shell •upply is daily growing and he fore we are through with the Huns they will learn some lessons in artillery shells, although PRICES Cjuarts, 2s. 3d. each.

Women at home who aae un able to work in munition fac lories arc working to limit of their endurance making neces saries for men in the field, and all are giving up their luxuries and many a lar^e part of their incomes for good of the country. England is a vast camp, all hands contributing to the well being of the services. No need to warn the man on the street against talking of movement of troops and mill tary plans. Every Englishman now thoroughly realizes that this is absolutely a war to the end and that it is the nation's war and not of a clique in the House of Lords, as some smaller wars in the past have been.

T\ie*dB.y. August 22, 1916
1 lie question which every-
body asks and nobody is able
accurately to answer is :
When will tlie Wat end?"
Lut we can at any rate bal-
ance probabilities and arrive
at a provisional idea on the
subject. At the begining of
the struggle, most ofus made
estimates that were far too
optimistic. At that stage,
however, we had far fewer
reliable data on which to
base our calculations. We
knew, for example, that Ger-
many was in the fust winter
firing oil defective shells,
while she was saving up all
the scraps of copper ere that
she could lay hands on, and
we jumped to the conclusion
that she would soon collapse
for want of munitions- but :
the terrible drive against
Russia last year rudely brush-
ed aside that found illusion.
In this and many ot er re-
spects wc have arrived at a
far truer estimate of the pow-
er and resources of our prin-
cipal foe. Yet it should not
be forgotten that this great J
military power has trained us I
and our Allies in the true met
hods of winning the war. just
as Napoleon did over a hun-
dred years ago. Thus our
prophesyings have beneath
them an increasingly solid
sub-stratum of fact.
When Generals Joffre and
Haigand Mr. Lloyd George
begin to use confident langu
age, it is time for us to do the
same. Joffre says that the
ciumbling of the enemy's
power is not distant. Sir
Douglas Haig says that when
we showed that \v.. could
break through their second
line of defences in theSoninie
region the Germans realized
they were beaten. He also
makes the significant remark
that our strength will reach
its maximum next Spring.
He tells us too that German
officer? taken prisoners in our
great offensive were astonish
ed at the glimpses they got
of our large reserve camps
behind the lines in France.
So we seem al.de to maintain
our present offensive this year
and increase it next year if
needs be. Lloyd George no
longer talks gloomily about
the inadequacy of our supply
of men and munitions. He
now predicts the attainment
of victory in the course of a
few months. On the whole,
we venture to think that the
Turish, Bulgarian and Last
African side shows will be
done awn) with this year.
As to whether the German
people, when they see that
victory is impossible will
consent to play the game of
their rulers by fighting on in
sheer desperation, we are not
in a position to judge. We
incline to think that they
will force their Government
to give in before the War can
reach a foutb year. Ihev
might do this by refusing to
subscribe to loans, by rioting
if) the cities, by sin rendering
in droves on the field of bat
tel, and by evading the press
censorship bv the dissemina
tion of seditious pnmplets. If
they continue their sheeplike
obedience to authority, they
can prolong the war over the
year 1917. Let us hope that
misery andcommonsensemny
combine to force them to
early peace.

London, 19: Assaults by
British and French forces against
German positions North of the
Somme have resulted in the
gaining of additional gr m.d by
the attackers, according to The
British and French war offices
The French made advances in
an 1 around \I lurepas the scene
of much hard fighting during
the last few weeks and the Bri
tish gain was in thedirection of
Ginchyand Gui lemon t near the
Southern end of their section of
the Somme front.
The Anglo-French attack,
London says, took place along
the whole line from Pozieres to
the Somme. The gains reported
by Pins were in the center of
the German positions in the
Somme front and mark another
step in Anglo-French advance
toward Combles.
French troops gained more
ground in the village of Maure
pas after the stopping of the
Germ an counter at tacks near the
village Calvary Hill Southeast
of tlie village was cat ried by as
sault and the French position on
the Maurepas Clery Road was
also extended.
British troops advanced sue
cessfully in the region of Ginchy
and Guilemont and seised more
German positions
The French offensive continues
on the right banks of the \Ieuse
in the Verdun region and Paris
chronicles the capture of two
fortified redoubts Northwest of
the Thiaumont Work
Berlin Reports attacks by the
French/.id British forces North

them v n,,v( pulsed except one

1%ire has been little activity
on the Bnstem front according
to the official reports most of
the fighting has been in the Car
pathian Mountains region where
both the Russanand the Austro
Germans claim to have made
some slight advances.
Berlin reports the capture of
the Greek town of Fiorina
North of Saloniki from Serbian
troops.
Artillery bombardments are
taking place on the Austro Ital-

Rome claims an advance for
I the Italians in the Trentino The
long expected geneial offensive

rtnd the grand assault against
tl.e Central Powers now is in
progress in every theater of the
world war.
General Sarrail is attacking
i the Bulgarians and German for
es along the entire Greek Ser-
bian frontier of more than iy>
miles.
Reports from both Berlin and
I Paris indicate that the Entente
Allies are following the same
tactics in the Balkans that sig
I nalized the opening of the great
1 offensive OS the Somme. Small
Imdies of troops are attacking
at numerous points along the
Bulgarian line apparently with
the intention of finding out
their opponents position.
The French claim the cap

"We are going to see this

a British officer of high com

"We have been slow but 'the
mills of the gods grind slow but
they grind exceedingly sure,
and we have learned all our les
sons, some of them from the
Germans, and are coming
along in fine shape. We have
only commenced."
Another officer writes from
Flanders : "Our gun and shell
upply is daily growing and he
fore we are through with the
Huns they will learn some les-
sons in artillery shells, although

England is a vast camp, all

No need to warn the man on

movement of troops and mill

now thoroughly realizes that
this is absolutely a war to the
end and that it is the nation's
war and not of a clique in the
House of Lords, as some smaller
wars in the past have been. As
one prominent American who
returned a few weeks ago from
England said : "England is war

and child is working together
